Cottonwood (Populus balsamifera), a cousin to willow trees, packs a medicinal punch! We're currently in the process of extracting the healing properties through the folk method of infusion. With this process, the longer the infusion, the stronger the medicine.
Cottonwood leaf buds contain tannins, as well as anti-inflammatory and fever-reducing salicylates. The resins from the buds also possess antifungal and antimicrobial properties in the form of flavones. An oil or salve made from this resin can bring relief to pain caused by swelling, arthritis, strains, and general muscle pains.
Directions: apply a small amount 1-2 times daily to affected area(s). Taking care to avoid eye contact
Handcrafted with: extra virgin olive oil infused with *cottonwood buds, organic beeswax, & pure essential oils
